Merry Monday Challenge #30

Happy Monday Friends!

Today I am a guest designer on Always Playing With Paper - Merry Monday Challenge. This is a fun blog where every Monday a card sketch is posted and the theme is always Christmas. I think that is such a great idea. By making just one Christmas card a week, when the holidays arrive, you'll be ready. How cool is that?

Get out your Christmas stamps, paper, ribbons and play along. With this weeks awesome sketch, the possibilities are endless.

  • With all the new products in the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, creating Christmas cards this year is a breeze.
  • The Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad adds a luminescent shimmer to stamped images. It's a watermark ink for tone-on-tone shimmer stamping.
  • This ink will give your holiday projects that "Wow" factor we all love.

Stamps: Evergreen
Paper: Snow Festival Designer Series Paper, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black & Whisper White CS
Ink: Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad and StazOn
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding, Linen Thread, Basic Black Button

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
